Here it is, Jeremy's Tractor cake! I used an svg from Treasure Box Designs "Funny Farm" Collection to make this and I will tell you how! I baked my cakes, I baked 2 sheet cakes in 9x13 pans and then stacked them together using buttercream frosting and did a thin coat of buttercream over the whole cake (a crumb coat) I used MTC and the Tractor svg, I created a rectangle that was 9x13 ( I deleted this 9x13 mat, it was only used to size everything since my cake was 9x13) and I put all of the pieces of the svg together on the virtual mat, I selected them all and created a shadow layer. I printed out the shadow layer on a piece of 11x17 paper and cut out the tractor shadow shape, this is what I used to cut the cake into the tractor shape. Then I used my expression to cut the pieces that were sized to the shadow that I printed, that way we had our patterns for the pieces to be cut out of the fondant. After we colored our fondant and cut out all of our pieces we used clear karo syrup as glue and assembled the pieces, after the cake was all assembled I used a clothes steamer to steam the cake to make it shiny. This was sun to make and the kids loved it (the grown up kids loved it too LOL)
